Tabletop Game Days

DCP runs occasional Tabletop Game Days. For an example of what sorts of games are run at these events, see below’s listing for the Winter 2016 event.


The descriptions of the games are below, so you know what’s happening! Also, in addition to these, our Secretary Vilte is bringing the necessary materials to play Fiasco!, a GM-less system that helps guide role-playing shenanigans! This will ensure no one is left out due to the limited space on the other games!
